LAPSLEY, Bridget

1945 - ?

Dendale 2

As Bridget E Hunt, she was born in 1945. She married at Weymouth, Dorset in 1972, John Clifford William Lapsley, and paints under the name of Bridget Lapsley. Bridget grew up in Suffolk, spending most of her childhood and schooldays in Ipswich and the surrounding countryside. She studied at the Ipswich School of Art in the 1960s, when well-known local practising artists such as Colin Moss [q.v.] and Bernard Reynolds [q.v.] were tutors. From Ipswich she went on to study 3D Design at Loughborough College of Art & Design, further developing design and practical skills of working in wood, metal and clay. Having moved away from Suffolk to study teach and work and spend some time overseas, she moved back to East Anglia, retiring from curatorial work within a museum environment, and returned initially to her drawing and painting. She lives with her husband at Culpho, near Ipswich. A member of the Ipswich Art Club and is inspired by her surroundings, the Suffolk landscape and shores, the natural world and a love of drawing, she works in a variety of genres and media to capture a moment, a detailed study, a composition or a pattern in a visual and meaningful way.
